Profile Detail

Sarah Zabic

Graduate Assistant
Sarah Zabic is a PhD student in the Department of History specializing in the cultural and intellectual analysis of social movements during the “long” 1960s in Europe. Her dissertation will focus on how dissident intellectuals of the Praxis School and students in Yugoslavia participated in the transnational wave of protest that swept the globe in the late 1960s. Her dissertation will examine the formation and contours of the political culture of protest in Yugoslavia, including the performance of dissident ideology during the protests and how the humanist Marxist critique that underpinned this dissident movement was represented in Yugoslav culture thereafter.   

In addition to the history of social movements and the transnational protests of 1968, Sarah’s teaching and research interests include the history of modern Europe, gender studies, cultural history, historical memory and conflict management, and the transnational black liberation movements in the U.S. and Africa. Sarah received her B.A. in Russian and South Slavic Area Studies and a certificate from the Russian and East European Institute at Indiana University, Bloomington, and went on to complete her master’s degree in history at Kent State University. In her spare time, she enjoys reading fiction, travel, engaging in cultural research in Cleveland’s many music venues, and watching films and vintage cartoons.
